03/31/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
03/31/17 13:24 Jaxon A1107497 is a 3yr old brown tabby & white male DSH feline who was picked up in front of the finder’s building in the Bronx a little while ago. They felt bad for him as they stated he’s a new stray and they believe someone tossed him out due to him not being able to use his hind legs properly. The finder isn’t able to keep him and thought it best for him to be brought in. The finder stated Jaxon was friendly and allowed them to pick him up and place him into a box to be brought into our BXAC. During intake Jaxon had a soft body/eyes and allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared and taken pictures of. Jaxon didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held at all and was placed into a kennel with ease where he shuffled to the back of the kennel and began eating the canned & dry food mix I gave him.

04/03/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Jaxon was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was receptive to all handling during intake and did not display any signs of aggression. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Gentle, docile allows handling, sweet, offered canned food, ate EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Jaxon is laying down at the back of the cage, looks at the assessor, and remains neutral. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jaxon continues to look at the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Jaxon stands and retreats to his cubby, behind the litter box. Reaction to touch: Jaxon tolerates the stroke, but is tense and begins to lip lick. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Mellow VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Timid POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful Jaxon has displayed fearful behavior during his stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide him with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Jaxon tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced cat parent

P is in no pain. He would do best outside of a shelter situation, as he seems to be holding his bladder from stress. this may of course improve as he becomes comfortable with the environment, he’s a sweet cat. alerted NH of p and that p seems stressed at ACC and likely cause of p holding bladder
